Few things transcend traditional political boundaries quite like music. Now, a bipartisan group of political operators are putting their campaign expertise together, working towards the mutual goal of the progressive rock group "Yes" being named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
John Brabender was senior media strategist for Republican Rick Santorum's 2012 presidential campaign. Now, the chief creative officer at political consulting firm BrabenderCox is working with Tad Devine, an architect of Democrat John Kerry's 2004 presidential bid, along with other political operators on both sides of the spectrum, all in the name of getting the Hall of Fame to say "Yes."
"Their music is revered by many politicians. In fact, we were excited at how quickly the two political parties could put policy disputes aside for this common goal," Brabender said in a statement.
"Republicans and Democrats actually agree on something: that Yes is one of the most influential progressive rock bands ever – and ultimately ensure Yes gets rightful place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
